"Since switchel was mainly for farmers and those who toiled outside, recipes for it were left out of the earlier American cookbooks To keep it chilled, jugs would be stashed away under the shade of a tree or partially submerged in a cool stream. For centuries, farmers have sworn on switchel – claiming it quenches the thirst, clears the throat and nose of dirt and hay, provides a boost of energy, and keeps the body from getting sick."
